38.       Consignment ~ DS ~ 1/15 ~ Case V-42. No question that it is the best that I have ever seen!  The blade retains 100% of the original bluing.  The factory Case edge is the only sharpening that it has ever had.  The blackened guard retains 98% of its finish.  The handle is perfect.  The pommel has 100% of its finish. The original long scabbard is 99% with the only staining being where the knife set in it.  It would be nearly impossible to upgrade this knife and sheath.  I saw one that sold on Ebay for $9750, and (in my opinion) it was not as nice…

51.       Consignment ~ DC ~ 10/30 ~ WWII USMC Raider Stiletto, Camillus Mfg.  This knife retains the factory needle tip on the full, unsharpened 7 ” blade. (I haven’t seen that very often over the years.)  The scroll USMC and the makers information are all there.  The blade has a lot of very tiny pitts on both sides.  They are very tiny and most look like spotting rather than pitts.  The handle and guard are in about 99% condition with only a very small amount of corrosion where the guard contacts the sheath.  I see zero ion leaching on the handle or  guard (unbelievable, but true!)  The original sheath is solid. Snap strap is missing the male snap.  3/8” cut at the throat.  Belt hanger is intact.  EUGENE MORRISON KNIGHT USMCR, WWII  DOG TAGS ARE ATTACHED.  Also, included are some personal newspaper clippings, patches, and other paper memorabilia belonging to Mr. Knight—Very cool to have…Nice to put a name with a knife.  No paperwork tying him directly to the Raiders.

The double edge blade is 7 1/8" long and I believe has the original finish. It has a brass knuckle bow and leather handle. It comes with the original scabbard that was made for the knife and is complete. It also comes with the original shipping box that is dated April 1944. I also have the original screws that held the lid on.  Very Neat Piece------$ 850.00

It is notched at the throat so that the squared off guard sits flat. Ref: Cole III pg 137 #3-------$ 375.00

4.  WWII Geneva Forge Mark 1-----The blade is 5 1/8" long and probably was parkerized at one time. It now has a thin blue finish. The leather handle is clean and solid. It comes with a leather scabbard that appears original to the knife. The snap works fine. Ref: Cole III pg 82 #25------$ 85.00

6.  WWI-WWII 4-Finger Push Dagger---Exc Plus----The sturdy double edge blade is 5 1/4" long with some old fine spotting. It is a little cloudy but I do not see any sharpening marks. The handle is aluminum with old green paint, which sometimes means it was carried by a GI. There is no damage to the handle. It comes with the original well made scabbard that is complete.  There is no damage to the scabbard. I found no markings on the knife or scabbard. The blade is similar in style and design as the WWII push daggers made by Cogswell Harrison, Robbins Dudley and Lockwood Brothers. On page 109 of Stephens Fighting Knives he shows a Push Dagger that has an almost identical handle (minus one finger hole) and the same length blade. Very good possibility that there is a connection to the OSS and SOE. This is the first one of these I have ever had and only the second one I have seen (saw one many-many years back).

80. A NEW BOOK--"US and Allied Military Knives, M3’s and M4’s”, a new book on M3’s and M4’s is now available.
 There are almost 200 pages, with 140 full page, color photos.  This book includes all the known M3 trench knife, M6 sheath and M4 knife-bayonet variations.  It also includes descriptions of the knives and sheaths. 
 Written by Bill Walters with input from Vince Coniglio, this is the most comprehensive book to date on M3’s and M4’s.
 This book was proudly printed in the USA.
 The cost of the book is $116, including Priority Mail shipping for one book.  For those of you wanting more than one copy or residing outside the US, please contact Bill to get a shipping estimate.
 To order please contact Bill at:  billwalters1948@gmail.com  If paying with your credit card, please make payment to Paypal.  Make Paypal payments to billwalters1948@gmail.com.

 


  FAKE F/S--The following information is being presented in the hope that other collectors will not get burnt:
Fake 2nd Pattern F/S--Made to be a Free French  Variation--The 6 7/8" blade is blackened, under the black is what appears to be a copper plating or coating. The guard has a small Broad Arrow on the top side. The blackened knurled grip has a large Cross  imbedded in the knurling. The Cross is aprox 1/2" tall and 3/8" wide.  After talking with a couple friends, John Fischer and Tom Parker and re-reading a section of Ron Flook's book, I have come to the conclusion that this thing is bogus.
This additional information came from fellow collector Kerry Gordon.  (thanks Kerry)
I just thought that you might like to know that you weren't the only one ever caught with one of these - not only do I have the French version but I also have one with the Belgian Rampant Lion stamped into the hilt.

The real give away with these is that the blade tang doesn't run all the way through the pommel nut, there's about two threads empty at the end of the nut.  The other thing is that the brass pommel nuts are painted with gloss black paint rather than blackened.

Someone spent a lot of time and effort on these, the blades are tinned under the blackening and the hilts are blackened brass that is reasonable well checkered.
